Elon University Poll Blames Big Oil for High Gas Prices

As the Easter weekend approaches and families consider traveling, the cost of gasoline continues to be an issue.

But the question is who is to blame for the prices?

A recent study conducted by Elon University says it’s the oil companies (CLICK HERE).

The study claims that 71% of respondents to their study claimed big oil companies are to blame.  The second highest was the countries who produce oil.  That came in at 58%.

Coming in under these top two groups to blame are the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats.  About four in ten seem to blame these two groups.

The national average for a gallon of gas is still $3.93 a gallon.  And locally in Goldsboro and Wayne County you’re seeing more convenience stores now advertising prices over $3.90 a gallon.
